ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Minnesota Twins have called up right-handed pitcher Yohan Pino from Triple-A Rochester, just one day after sending him down.
The move was made before Friday's game at Texas, when the Twins also placed shortstop/center fielder Danny Santana on the 15-day disabled list with a bone bruise in his left knee.
The Twins announced Pino as their starter for Monday's game against Kansas City. Pino was sent down Thursday so the Twins could call up shortstop Jorge Polanco from Class A Fort Myers for depth after Santana was hurt. Santana suffered the injury running the bases Wednesday.
Pino made his major league debut last week. In two starts, he has a 6.30 ERA over 10 innings.
